    This is a great set. Took forever to setup as the directions could be a little clearer. It has provided a lot of entertainment.
    The cars are fast (sometimes too fast) and the track itself is durable.
    The bad points:
    The so called accessories like the spinging objects, the lava explosion, the whomp? blocks and especially the start are fragile in how the K'nex system handles it.

    The accessories are flimsy at best. The Lava features come flying off as soon as a car hits them.
    The start line has two little tabs that are controlled SEPARATELY rather then by one lever, which means a child has to reach over the track or sit on the inside of the track. The smaller starter set has a better system.
    The "gate" that directs which lane the cars will take is always malfunctioning. It could be that the set is on carpet, but I just used the included 4 ramps to elevate it. The problem is the cars are too fast and pieces fall off of them at times and don't activate the gate like they should. It leads to cars actually jumping over this.

    I bought the expansion kit, but haven't figured out a solid entertaining layout because I want more wide track pieces then single lane ones.

    I noticed that the way you put the tires on the car make a difference as well. If you put the tires on after the rims are on, they seem to be faster at turning and if they are put on before the rims they are faster on the straights. (Seriously I am not making this up)

    I am pointing out a lot of flaws, but I really don't regret this set. I wish there was a way to have a small motor attached to the accessories for control, but that would drive the price up.

    I would buy this in a heartbeat again because it is fun. I just wish accessories like the lane changer and other cars that take batteries were sold separately from having to buy other sets.

    My kids are 7 and 4 and LOVE it, but so do I.

    This was a gift for my son at Christmas. So far he has enjoyed it and it has entertained him. However, he had to be very patience and wait for it to be put together. It took me awhile to put it together since I was putting it together between holiday visits. The box says 6+ but there is no way a 6 year old can put this together. The construction of it is a little flimsy and I am having to repair often because my son hits the pieces when moving around the track. It is large and consumes a large amount of space, so make sure that you have room for it. I haven't had any problems with the cars coming apart, but they EAT BATTERIES! Seriously, we go through 4 batteries (2 each car) every 2 hours. So, I had to purchase rechargable batteries! Overall, I'm pleased because my son enjoys it and had plan to purchase the other tracks to add to it. However, after putting this togehter, I do not plan to purchase any more of the K'nex Mario Kart tracks!

    I got this for christmas and it is a wonderful set! The figures and items have a lot of great detail! Sadly, It took me around 3 hours to assemble it. Great product nonetheless though.

    Gave this to my son for Christmas and he loves it! It is not a quick assemble, but I think that the putting together is part of the fun and was good for my 7 year old. Glad we got this for him.

    Really fun set, large and complex

    By Builder18888

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about KNEX Education K'NEX Mario Kart Wii Ultimate Building Set - Bowser's Castle:

    A couple of us grown-ups worked for an hour or so putting parts of this together, having not used K'NEX before, and still only got the basic track and maybe half of the add-ons done. For people with previous K'NEX experience, it might have gone faster and easier. The instructions are not broken down into as many steps as other building kits I have used, and require more careful study to see how things go together. The different colors used for parts that are new to a given step than for parts that have been assembled in previous steps were a confusing aspect initially, as well. That said, my son had an absolute blast racing the karts around and trying to get Mario to beat Luigi (apparently he has a real preference between the two). This was his most-played with toy on Christmas morning, and my father and I enjoyed working on the build together.

    Great for the kids. Pain to assemble.

    Comments about KNEX Education K'NEX Mario Kart Wii Ultimate Building Set - Bowser's Castle:

    Bought this item as a christmas gift for our 6 year old. He absolutely loves it. Only problem is that it takes forever to assemble and the pieces are scattered throughout many many bags. Overall a great toy but it would be better if the pieces were packaged in some sense of order.

    Comments about KNEX Education K'NEX Mario Kart Wii Ultimate Building Set - Bowser's Castle:

    My 7 year old loves it but it is a challenge to build and takes a long time, but I kept reminding him that was part of the fun. He just couldn't wait to race the cars. And the thing is humongous. Overall, we are happy with the purchase.

      Seriously one of the worst racetracks my kids have had. Takes forever to assemble and the cars don't even race. My kids got this for Christmas and they were sick of it within 2 weeks. Gave it to Goodwill.

      Comments about KNEX Education K'NEX Mario Kart Wii Ultimate Building Set - Bowser's Castle:

      Got this for my 4 yr old, who loves playing the Wii Mario Kart game. Took quite awhile just to put karts together, pieces kept coming apart, and the directions are lacking. The karts kept spinning in circles! Thanks Mario/Sonic Collecter129, for the above comment, stating hard wheels should be on the front. Why isn't this WRITTEN in the directions?? Pictionary can only go so far K'nex! I thought all the wheels were the same, until I really felt them. Also, there are a ton of pieces all in separate bags, the pieces for the karts are scattered in multiple bags- really would it be that hard to group them all in one bag! In addition, it eats batteries like crazy and is super noisy...luckily got it on sale half price. I'm not fond of it, but my son loves it so far.
